performance from barry zito an tim lincecum. and an unbelievable offensive night from the same two guys. )scutaro was good. pablo sandoval unbelievable. >> tim: three home runs in a world series game for only the fourth time in history. remarkable. >> joe: he hit a solo shot in the first. two-run shot in the third. solo blast in the fifth. single in the seventh for good measure. scutaro two more rbi hits. two more runs scored. that two-three combination has made bochy smile quite a bit in the 2012 post season. here they are. 95-mile-per-hour fastball, 0-2 from verlander. home run to center.

another 95-mile-per-hour fastball, home run to left. pitch in the 80s against albuquerque, went down to get it and rode it out to center. plenty of offense. the final 8-3. let's go down to erin andrews. >> erin: joe, thanks. pablo, you join a list now with babe ruth, reggie jackson and albert pujols as players to hit three home runs in a world series. how does it sound? >> player: excited. excited to be part of that. one of the things when you live and your dream is to play in the world series, your dream comes true. >> erin: you told me as a little kid you didn't hit three home runs before. what did justin verlander throw to you that you were able to take him out of the park twice? >> player: he has good stuff. he has been throwing. it was another pitch i was looking for. i got a good pitch to hit. >> erin: there was so much made about tigers and the time off they
11:37 pm

11:40 pm
what a night for the home crowd here in game one. a final of 8-3. zito over verlander here in game one. we'll send it across the field, out in left-field, our guys on the set. matt vasgersian, it's all yours. >> matt: joe, thanks. here with harold reynolds, eric karros, a.j. pierzynski. guys, as you know it's rare when a game one story becomes the enduring story throughout a whole world series. but when you consider willie mays played in 20 world series. had 70 world series at-bats and never hit one home run, pablo sandoval's performance tonight becomes more impressive. >> you know what was cool about it, at home in the ballpark. albert pujols did it last year in the world series. on the road in texas. but to do it here, it reminds me of reggie jackson in new york, the kids. crowd was going crazy. he had a chance for four. >> eric: this ballpark does not yield home ru
11:41 pm
runs. fewest in big leagues and he made the park look small. >> a.j.: two were off verlander. and albuquerque wasn't easy to elevate the ball off of with the slider he throws. pablo sandoval a tremendous job. barry zito is the story for me. >> matt: indeed. more than just pablo sandoval. ken rosenthal is standing by with another one of giants' game one heroes. ken? >> ken: thanks, matt. barry, a tough line-up. cabrera, fielder, what was your game plan going in tonight? >> player: just to mix all my pitches around and to keep them off-balance. and, you know, throw them in for strikes so they couldn't sit on one pitch. >> ken: i know you like to stay in the moment and not get caught up in the hoopla but we had tough times here. when the crowd was chanting your name, what was going through your mind? >> player: i couldn't enjoy it as much as i like. when you are out there, you've got serious work to do. and you can't really be the third person and
11:42 pm
look around. the fans are awesome. we know that. it feels great to take the first one for them at home. >> ken: first world series start, you weren't on the post season roster in 2010 at all. how satisfying was it to pitch the world series opener, and to win with world series opener? >> yeah. just the opportunity alone was mind blowing. me and my wife were dancing around and stuff, just with the opportunity. this is just, icing on the cake to have the boys come out swinging and play the unbelievable defense. blanco getting it done. for us to get the win is huge. >> ken: what about the panda? >> player: yeah. he will look back on this night for the rest of his this night. anything happened in the game and panda was a sight to see tonight. >> ken: thank you very much. >> player: thank you. >> ken: matt, back to you. >> matt: thanks, kenny. ten years after he was named the american league cy young award winner in 2002, barry zito has a night for the ages in october of 2012. he was terrific tonight. this is a guy you played with in oakland, a guy
11:43 pm
you faced. what did you see out of your old mate tonight? >> eric: same thing of game five of the championship series. a guy that nibbled on the corners. when he did get in trouble he got out of it. he never gave in and battled and battled. you can't say enough about the way that barry zito has pitched and how he stepped up. the first game, runners on first and second. prince fielder, what does he do? pop up out there and then delmon young up to the plate. gets out of the inning right here. he set acetone right out of the chute. he is showing everybody, hey, you know what? i'm going to contribute here with a base hit. swing the bat a little bit. >> harold: how about that? >> matt: rbi hit. very nice. >> a.j.: barry zito getting two huge hits in the playoffs with a bat. unbelievable. >> harold: well, the big thing to me that n that little bit of time right there is fielder feel swinging at the first pitch. he has a chance to get them out. hasn't played in five days. seen pitcher. swung at the first pitch. zito ended up getting out of that whole inning. that was a big at-bat. >> eric: for me,
11:44 pm
obviously, zito with a big hit. >> a.j.: but the tigers' patience as hitters and how they approached verlander. they went after him opposite field and up the middle. they didn't try to pull him or get big and do too much. watch pagan, lucky off the base. double. then marco scutaro follows it. 3-2. single up the middle. even pablo sandoval and the home run were both to center. left, and then center again. you see him going the other way here. barry zito with this awesome swing for a knock as a pitcher. as a hitter, go up there not try to do too much. not take advantage of what verlander is doing and try and use, let him supply the power. you don't have to supply the power to justin verlander. he will do it for you. that's what the giants did tonight. they used the whole field, stayed inside the ball and got hits. took what he gave them. >> harold: it's interesting, watching verlander he didn't hit 98, 99. he wasn't up there. i think the hardest ball 96aw him throw was 9 # on the night. marco scutaro at-bat after the ball hit the base, fouling pitches off.
11:45 pm
he couldn't put guys away. the time off definitely showed, as we got a chance to see him all the way through this. e but we sit here and talk about the time off. give giants credit. they flat-out went out there and beat them. they are the type of team that would give verlander trouble. it didn't think it would happen tonight but they battle, battle. they grind at-bats. like i said, we have to give giants credit. for get the time off. they went out there. rio de janeiro verlander wasn't as sharp but the same time giants gave them bats that frustrated the pitchers. you could see it on verlander's face. he was frustrated, angered. the pitching coach came out and you could read his lips. he's like "what are you doing out here?" he's not used to guys putting bats on him. it frustrated him. >> harold: you heard sandoval talk about he would attack the fastball. they did a great job of taking it away. it want to go see the three home runs. he had three home runs in a world series game. look at it a few more times. he will take it away.
11:46 pm
verlander, early in the game. then he was throwing changeup and breaking balls. one guy to jump on the heat was the panda, verlander's fastball right there. the home run to albuquerque. three home runs in a world series game. that is impressive. >> eric: a.j. brought this up earlier, too. in the all-star game, panda faced verlander. he got him on a breaking ball. breaking ball. he was ready tonight for the fastball. >> matt: the giants, if you can say this about a team winning an opener at home steal one against justin verlander, who was a big favorite. a little more pressure ratchet up tomorrow for game two. fister on the mound for the detroit tigers. has been as good as any right-hander in the american league the last two months of the season. madison bumgarner for san francisco. he has had post season struggles. bruce bochy feels confident that his left-hander will be as good as advertised. and as he was early in the season in game two. reminder, that coming up next, except on the west coast, local news. join us tomorrow night
